This is my latest scrapbooking creation. I had some pictures I had set aside on my desk and every time this one caught my eye, it reminded me of the More Amore suite from the Spring catalogue. The colours just match so well! I decided to just give it a go. Looking at how much space I needed for my design, I decided to go with a 8½ x 11 page, which I hadn't done in forever (and when I slipped the page in my current 8½ x 11 album, I realized I only have two other pages in there!). I also used a lot of embellishments from the Artisan Embellishments kit. It was easier to splurge on using those on a page, knowing they'd remain in my album. haha! Do you ever feel like that, that if you use a more expensive embellishment on a card, that card has to go out to someone who'll REALLY appreciate it?
I want to point out that the title was created with two brand-new alphabet sets that coordinate with one another. They're called ABC-123 OUtline Alphabet & Numbers and ABC-123 Sketch Alphabet & Numbers. The first one is an outline alphabet and the second is a full one, so they can be used independently or layered to fill out of the letters. (Check it out on page 131 of the annual catalogue, you'll see what I'm talking about.) I got it during the preorder and I'm already in love with it. The size is PERFECT! For cards OR for scrapbooking. It's just small enough that I can spell longer words, but still substantial enough that it doesn't get lost on a page. I can tell I'm going to be using this one a lot. My only peeve is, Why doesn't it come in wood-mount? I didn't even realize that when I placed my order and thought I had messed up with the ordering when I received my order. A quick leaf through the catalogue let me know there was only clear-mount available. Oh, well... I still love this alphabet enough to overlook the fact that it only comes in clear. I truthfully just prefer wood-mount for alphabet sets because it makes it easier to use with the Stamp-a-Ma-Jig (which is a must for me).
